Chef Gabelli

“In front of me sits a man who can not stop fidgeting with his fingers, and with a gentle face, he asks me what I want to know about him.”

“I have only known him five minutes, and I can already sense that he is anxious to get back in his kitchen. His tone constantly changes from his interview voice to shouting orders into the kitchen behind me. I have never met anyone who can so vividly describe food in the way he does and it’s not due to his accent.”

Chef Gabelli,  was born in Parma Italy which is known for it’s Futbol and exquisite pastas. His mother was a renowned chef, which lucky for us, rubbed off on him. After being accepted and attending the prestigious culinary academy of Neuchatel Switzerland, he decided to bring the taste of home to the United States.

Not long after starting a small restaurant in the state of Washington, he not only was voted the number one Italian restaurant in the state, he was also nationally acknowledged in wide array of publishing ranging from local papers to Pacific Northwest Magazine. To raise his daughter out of the city, he thankfully came to Lubbock Texas where we are now.

Since being in Lubbock, not only has he won 2 Iron Chef competitions, or just become the number one Italian restaurant in the Midwest, but he has brought with him a taste of home that I can’t begin to describe.
